Well, this week's class meetings are all about Space. No, not the planets, but the need to have some room! I have a little guy at home who loves to snuggle and cuddle so I do understand those little friends in our rooms that love to hold their best buddy's hand or have a need to whisper in someone's ear rather than just speak in a low voice. This week is all about teaching these kiddos that not everyone feels comfortable with someone in their space. It all ties in with our lessons on respect. We need to be thoughtful and conscious of what other people need. We have used this wonderful book for several years now and it is great for sparking discussion and coming up with ways to nicely tell a friend that they are in your space.

This year we are also using this great graphic organizer that Erin made. Very simple, but a great way to check for understanding. You can click on the pic for your own copy. We are also linking up with Manic Mondays at Classroom Freebies so after you grab your Personal Space freebie you can visit there and find some other great freebies!
